Jason Witten, TE, Dallas Cowboys
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Surprisingly, for a sure-handed tight end of Jason Witten’s size and stature, the Dallas Cowboy has been extremely inconsistent when it comes to finding the end-zone in his career. Check these numbers out, 1, 6, 6, 1, 7, 4, 2, 9, 5 and then 2012′s 3. That is perhaps the one thing that keeps him from being considered the top tight end in fantasy football.
Let’s not kid ourselves, his reception yardage is there. Consistently approaching or topping 1,000 yards a season since 2007, while racking up anywhere from 79-110 receptions in that span, he is someone who definitely won’t hurt your team, unless you overpay for him. He also is a rarity and someone that deserves your respect.
He hasn’t missed a single game since 2003 so health is not really a concern. The one thing that you should be looking at though is that he will be 31 this season and this is ab...

AROUND THE WEB
Free agency is underway. Teams are posturing and positioning and snapping up talent to improve their on-field product.
Everyone, that is, except your Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys, due to Jerry Jones’s shrewd moves in the past—Yes, that is my tongue in my cheek—have been obliged to move heaven and earth and release players like Gerald Sensabaugh and former first-rounder Marcus...
Hey, Dallas Cowboys fans, the Ides of March have come and gone.
For those of you that have no clue what the Ides of March is in the first place, here you go:
The Romans did not number days of a month sequentially from the first through the last day. Instead, they counted back from three fixed points of the month: the Nones (5th or 7th, depending on the length of the month), the Ides ...
Dallas Cowboys Not Looking to Free Agency:
Dallas fans have been wondering since the Redskins game ended in Week 17 how the team was going to fix its problems—and they still are.
At one time the Dallas Cowboys were the team to beat. Opponents feared them, the fans loved them, and opposing fans hated to see them come to town. Now they are the team that should win, but...
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Dallas Cowboys are still looking to sign quarterback Tony Romo to an extension so they can free up more cap room and make some moves in free agency.
Instead of focusing on signing any free agents right now, I think the Cowboys are going to work hard to get an extension done for both Romo and linebacker Anthony Spencer...
Anthony Spencer‘s agent, Jordan Woy, mentioned that he expects to meet with the Dallas Cowboys to discuss a long-term contract at some point weeks, via ESPN Dallas.
Spencer recently signed his franchise tender worth $10.6 million for the 2013 season, but a long-term could reduce that figure while freeing up some much needed cap space in the time being.
Dallas reportedly only...

It's only possible to fail by selecting a bust.The second and third rounds, which take place...
Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Dan Connor has signed with the New York Giants as a free agent.
The Giants announced the signing of the former Penn State product Saturday without disclosing details.
Connor can play both inside and outside, so his signing casts some doubt on whether New York will bring back middle linebacker Chase Blackburn, who is a free agent.
The Ravens have signed another defensive end. This time it’s Marcus Spears, a former Cowboy first-round pick. According to reports, Spears and the Ravens agreed to terms on a two-year contract.
Spears was released by the Cowboys this offseason after starting six games last season.
Baltimore is focusing on strengthening their defensive front in free agency apparently.
Pro Football Talk reports that the New York Giants have signed former Cowboy’s linebacker Dan Connor.
PFT adds that Connor will receive a one-year deal from the Giants.
The Giants hosted Connor for a workout yesterday after he had reportedly visited both the Raiders and Steelers previously.
It would make sense to see the Giants look for some extra help at linebacker given that...
After an offseason of losing players from their Super Bowl roster, the Baltimore Ravens have made a free-agent acquisition that bolsters their defensive line.
A source told FOXSports.com that former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears is signing a two-year contract with Baltimore.
The news was first reported by FOXSports.com.
Spears, 30, played all eight of his NFL seasons...
